Subchapter 002 : The Cooperative Marketing Act(Cite as: 11 V.S.A. § 1018)
§ 1018. Marketing contracts—Terms
An association and its members may make and execute marketing contracts, requiring the members to sell, for any period of time, all or any specified part of their agricultural products or specified commodities exclusively to or through the association or any facilities to be created by the association. If they contract a sale to the association, it shall be conclusively held that title to the products passes to the association upon delivery except for legally recorded chattel mortgages given for value and prior to July 1 in any year on such products or commodities whether such mortgages are given before or after the making of such contract of sale. The contract may provide, among other things, that the association may sell or resell the products delivered by its members, with or without taking title thereto, and pay over to its members the resale price, after deducting all necessary selling, overhead and other costs and expenses, including interest or dividends on stock, not exceeding eight percent per annum, and reserves for retiring the stock, if any, and other proper reserves, and for any other reductions.
